Copied from a post in the main Diagnosed forum:

Hi im new here and not a sufferer personally but a loved one has schizophrenia and after recently reuniting with her and discovering shes been off her meds for several years and is not doing well i know i need to intervene but how do i get through to her when most of the time shes off somewhere else mentally and when medication or doctors have been brought up she doesnt react well. Shes fading before my eyes and someone has to do something im all she has and i dont know how best to help her without causing more damage shes been through and is in hell please any advice would be a blessing.
